My super talented crafty friend just so happens to be a master marbler and by that I mean she will marble anything and make it look cool.
She had an issue of a 1918 newspaper that she was marbling and framing. They are so cool. Here is a picture I took this past summer of her with a couple of her pieces:
This is another piece of hers that they are selling at SCRAP that I love.
So today I decided to try my hand at marbling. I went over to Keri's house and marbled 14 pieces that were from a June 1958 Oregonian, which was was super fun to look through and read. I love old newspapers and magazines, especially the ads. They are so funny and marvelous. I was kind of sad about breaking it up, but it was for the sake of art.
Here are six pieces I was able to bring home. The rest are drying in Keri's garage, I will keep you posted:

I also saw a recent blog post from Design Sponge that had a DIY project on making marbled napkin ring holders, which was pretty easy. You just cut a paper towel tube into smaller pieces to make the rings and then adhere your marbled paper to the outside and they look super cool.
